Bio

A one man musical force from Melbourne, Cullen’s music welds together a shimmering array of guitars, keys, synths and drums that evokes the raw sentiment of Deathcab for Cutie plied with the textured electronics of Royksopp and the off-kilter pop sensibilities of Phoenix all united under the banner of his singular, soaring vocals. Cullen’s emergence as a solo artist began in 2007 when Triple J Unearthed selected an early demo of 'Stranger Danger' as a feature track. Following weeks of airplay, Cullen decided to get serious, so in true Australian style he threw a keg party to help raise funds for a session in a proper recording studio. These sessions led to a demo EP and from there on in it’s been two years of non-stop work, culminating in an eight month stint in London, where he completed the final recordings for his forthcoming album with UK production duo The Slips.

Clearly you are ...

Clearly you are an artist with an exciting musical path ahead of you. You can hear the influences on all 3 tracks here shining through but it's evident you've got your own considerable talent too!
